        These samples illustrate the creation of an application built with .NET for Windows Azure that takes advantage of many of the integration features of Windows Azure and SQL Azure.
        To check for software prerequisites needed to run the samples, run CheckDependencies.cmd in the sample scenarios folder once all content is extracted to your local file system. This batch file launches a dependency checking tool that reports any components that are missing in your system, and it provides links if needed for obtaining, installing and configuring the missing components.
